that tell us the most about politics. everyone thinks the popular vote is close to 50-50. >> that's right. we see in the states that have closed, there are a couple of calls. obama doing great in the northeast. mitt romney, doing well in the south. states projected for obama, vermont, maine. going out on a limb. and for romney, he has georgia, indiana, south carolina, west virginia. the ones we care about, virginia and ohio. they feel ok about florida and virginia. but a sign of trouble. jonathan martin is hearing the margins for him in chesterfield county just outside of richmond, where he is doing well, it is not good enough. if he's losing there, it's a sign of trouble in the state. in ohio, romney is worried about the midwest. wisconsin, and ohio, real nervousness. in the obama war room, confidence. exit polls looked good for john kerry. there are jokes about president kerry. but their models are coming in. the vote is coming in how they expected. >> one state declared is indiana, which obama won and it is called for romney. it shows the map is smaller this time, the map is smaller. s
in the some direction kron 4 urs the jackie is on the scene. >> this is a bad commute so if you can use 580 as an alternative route that will save you some time. >> only one line is open eastbound 24 in a run the. the worst back of this on the west bound side. >> downtown san francisco all cannot see much. we do have delays at f f all due to disability. something that we will keep track of as we head into the course of a morning. into the afternoon when will see that the sunshine will climb into the 60s and low 70's. fog will return for the evening hours. we do have wet weather ahead of us as we push and a burst and friday. into thursday and friday. i will break down your afternoon high coming up in just a bit. >> it has been 6 months and more than 100 rallies since the president ticked off his reelection efforts. it has now came to win in and a poor performance in the first presidential debate. as election night wore on he continued to rack on boats and was ohio the put president obama on top. for both of the canada is in the final hour after his victory the president stated that he looks
bet you were close to saying i bet you $10,000. >> best in the u.s. or worldwide? >> the u.s. >> the readers' favorite city. >> we'll do a gentleman's bet. i'm going to go with san antonio, texas. >> respect your answer, but it's incorrect. >> san francisco. >> incorrect. >> one of the ones -- that's been like number one. >> that's moved on to number two so we'll get that to you. >> where was san antonio? >> it's a tease. >> come on, let's go. >> give me number three. let's get a check of the top stories this morning with natalie over at the news desk. >> good morning, matt, savannah and willie, good morning, everyone. an historic night as president obama wins a second term in the white house. the commander in chief addressed the cheering crowd in chicago after picking up more than 300 electoral votes. nbc's kristen welker hats very latest from chicago. good morning, kristen. >> natalie, good morning to you. after months of campaigning and spending record amounts of money, president obama declared victory. there is a lot riding on this second term, especially with the stagnan
-atlantic at this hour and it could mean snow for some of us. let's go over to veronica johnson. >> yes, still a strong coastal storm. as i said yesterday, the storm system more off the coast and still trying to overcome a lot of dry air. so this is how our day has looked pretty much with really precipitation falling throughout. just got off the phone with a friend of mine up in essex, maryland, areas northeast baltimore, where there's been a few drops of rain falling there. let's take me up to philadelphia, pennsylvania, where they've had flakes of snow. in fact, bigger flakes. you can see covering the camera lens. you can see the traffic down below. philadelphia, pennsylvania, from this coastal storm, one of the areas that's expecting some of the higherccumulating snowfalls. trenton, new jersey, and up around hartford, connecticut. back to what's going on here. you can see the trend, the moisture pushing throughout the morning hours. the afternoon hours from east to west, now leesburg, d.c., waldorf, leonardtown. very few reports of much of anything falling here. in new jersey, look at that white, di
us that none of the vote has been counted. how can you say that mitt romney has won west virginia? well, all of our cbs news projections tonight will be based on the vote that has been counted and also our exit polling. we have been talking to voters in all of these states all day long as they've left the polling places and based on that exit poll information, we will project winners in these states and we will do so only when we have complete confidence in that projection. now let's look at that battleground states that we keep referring to tonight. these are the states that could go either way. these are the states that are going to tip the balance tonight for one candidate or the other. the polls have closed in a few of them, but many are still voting. in the state of virginia, we do not have a projection, but this is the tabulated vote as we see it so far. just 2% of the vote has been counted. mitt romney out with a lead there. this is a state that president obama won by 6% in 2008, but again, the mitt romney lead may or may not last because only 2% of the vote has been counte
as the president's people told us did end up being demographics and turnout. latinos continue their embrace of the democrats and the rejection of the republicans. the white share of the vote was 72% which was exactly what plouffe, axelrod and mecino told us it would be. we want to break news here. >> we have mugs. we are excited. i'm sure our viewers are excited. >> on a day of big news, this was breaking. >> this is what we care about. no. we get in to the politics of this, what happened, the demographic break down and quickly say what this means for the country. health care stays. it means paul ryan's budget is essentially irrelevant since they weren't able to get the majority in the senate and maybe more importantly i think latino voters made their voice heard loud and clear to both parties in this election and comprehensive immigration reform of some sort will have to be a priority in the next administration. >> you're absolutely right. the gop has to move to the left on the immigration. latino issues. black and brown voters emerged this year as power brokers saying white people cannot
for the president. david gregory is with us. chuck todd, andrea mitchell and tom brokaw. sum up what we've just seen. >> this is going to be a difficult place to manage, even with a second term. but make no mistake, brian. this is a president with some muscle. he just got re-elected after four years of a very difficult economy, that was very slow to recover. still is slow to recover. very high debt. fiscal house not in order, in any way, shape or form. a lot of challenges, two foreign wars. a lot of questions of america's influence in the world. a lot of the headwind. and he pulled this out. and it wasn't a narrow victory. this could turn out to be rather big. he brings all of that to a soaring speech, where he made a point of reaching out to governor romney, praising his father and his mother. and praising the service of mitt romney, as well, as well as his parents. hope to meet with governor romney to talk about a way forward. talked about meeting with republicans, as well. he knows he has to signal to the country, the things he has to change. they have to work together to deal with the fiscal cli
of option pit mentoring gives us our first look at the trading day, and what do you anticipate on this post-election day mark? > > well, president obama won, so let's look at what his policies are really going to do. i think he's a weak dollar president. so what does that mean? gold is going to rally, commodities are going to rally. i think you will still have people searching for yield, so the stock market is going to rally. we will see a big sell- off in the vix, and we should see a sell-off in the u.s. dollar as well. > > what do you think about gold and oil here? yesterday they both ramped up. > > we saw both buying ahead of an obama victory. there is a strong belief that gold could make an end-of-year run through its all-time highs toward that $2,000 level. oil is a little more demand-centric, so expect it to test $90, maybe $95 in wti, but i doubt it's going to be testing new highs toward the end of the year. > > as you know, consumer confidence is up. we have retailers reporting earnings this week. is this a time to buy retail stocks? > > i think you have to be smart about which
